It will also feature a pulled pork cook off for local residents, who can bring already prepared homemade pulled pork to be judged by a local celebrity panel.

Thursday, September 20, will feature entertainment by local groups, featuring music, theater, and dance, including the Dublin High Jazz Band performing at 6:00 pm. Tom McCarthy, Dublin Chief of Police, will have coffee with residents in an informal get-together.

The farmers’ market is held in partnership with Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association. Emerald Glen Park is located at 4201 Central Parkway, Dublin. The Market is held this year near the playground on the corner of Central Parkway and Tassajara Road.
